, tucker? i mean, 30% of the country believes that barack obama-- 36 believes he's hiding something about his background and early life and it's not all republicans. >> right. >> megyn: and the amount of independents also believe that. >> the same poll showed 36% of democrat think that bush was part of the 9/11 conspiracy theory. it's a complicated world and people use the theories to explain it when they don't understand it. the real mystery is not where obama is from, who cares, it's the motives in doing the things he does, so he says obamacare would reduce health care cost, it doesn't. raising taxes on the rich would balance the budget, it didn't. banning rifles with certain cosmetic features will prevent shootings, that's not true. and the real question is his motives and stated reasons don't make sense. people have a right to have answer and i don't know what it is. >> megyn: is it because he was born in kenya, a muslim, or the ability for like the bill clinton did, to break through and say i was born in hawaii. >> he is a different kind of president than we've ever seen. he's an afr
about the continuation of this president's legacy and his vision for the country. >> suarez: mr. obama will actually be sworn in sunday, in private, to meet the constitutional requirement for the oath on the 20th. then, he'll take the oath in public the next day. in a way, he will become the first president since franklin d. roosevelt to take the oath of office four times. in 2009, he took the oath twice because, in a do-over, performed the day after chief justice john roberts tripped on his lines during the first inauguration. >> within a few days, the president will be walking from that part of the capitol right here, and then down these stairs. >> suarez: new york democratic senator chuck schumer is chairman of the joint congressional committee on inaugural ceremonies, which oversees all of the inaugural rituals related to the capitol. >> there's no tanks in the streets, there's no rioting or picketing or protesting. it's a beautiful thing about america that the inauguration reminds us of. with all the trouble we have, the inauguration symbolizes that the republic marches onward. >>
. >> he won't collect ransom for not collecting it on the economy. the last time the country reached the debt ceiling, obama was thinking about what will be prioritized next time. >> if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on times, social security checks and veterans benefits will be delayed. we might not be able to pay our troops or honor our contracts with small business owners. food inspectors, air traffic controllers, specialists who track down loose nuclear material wouldn't get paychecks. investors will ask if united states is america is a in fact a safe bet. >> reporter: they launched a new term by focusing on the issue likely to dominate the second term. >> shep: what are we hearing from republicans on this? >> republicans are looking at a fiscal perfect storm in march, avoid the fiscal cliff and renew funding for most government programs. john hoern boehner said the consequences of failing to increase the debt ceiling are real but so, too, the consequences of allowing our spending programs to go unresolved. congressman mike lee the latter problem could ec
with nermeen shaikh. >> welcome to all our listeners and viewers from around the country and around the world. president obama is set to propose sweeping new gun restrictions today in an effort to curb gun violence one month after the newtown school massacre. obama will reportedly call for a ban on assault weapons, a ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines, and expanded background checks for gun buyers. white house press secretary jay carney spoke on tuesday. >> the president and vice president will hold in event here at the white house to unveil a package of concrete proposals to reduce gun violence and prevent future tragedies like the ones in newtown, connecticut. they will be joined by children from around the country who wrote the president letters in the wake of that tragedy, expressing their concerns about gun violence and school safety along with their parents. >> obama's proposal is said to include 19 separate steps he could take through executive action. other aspects of the deal would have to go through congress. meanwhile, new york governor andrew cuomo has signed what is being
concerned about israel. >>> president obama meanwhile nominated counter terrorism advisor john brennan to lead the cia. some ethicists have questioned brennan's support for the country's controversial drone program, which brennan defended in a speech at the woodrow wilson center last may. >> targeted strikes conform to the principal of humanity, which requires us to use weapons that will not inflict unnecessary suffering. for all these reasons, i suggest to you that these targeted strikes against al qaeda terrorists are indeed ethical and just. >>> also this week, obama chose his chief of staff jack lew, an orthodox jew, to head the treasury department. >>> plans are being completed for president obama's second inaugural, but controversy has already prompted a change. atlanta evangelical pastor louie giglio was selected to give the benediction, but he bowed out after some activist groups criticized a sermon he gave in the 1990s against homosexuality. giglio said he didn't want the uproar to become a distraction. myrlie evers-williams, widow of slain civil rights leader medgar evers, wi
. that's how the white house is describing the proposals that president obama will offer this morning to reduce gun violence across the country. but how much change can happen without the support from congress? chuck hagel's bid to run the pentagon appears to be gaining steam with key democrats now giving him a thumbs up. this morning, we'll talk to one of his biggest advocates on the hill, rhode island's jack reed. and some must-see tv. bill clinton kicks the door wide open for a hillary clinton campaign in 2016 and he makes a direct appeal, saying her health is not an issue and that he'll support whatever she decides. good morning from washington. it's wednesday, january 16th, 2013. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get right to my first reads of the morning. and it begins with guns. today the president will unveil what one gun control activist characterized nbc news as the most sweeping gun control measures proposed since right after the assassinations of bobby kennedy and mlk back in 1968. the president is going bold, fulfilling a promise he made one month ago in
. we put our own country first. i think this is going to be the battle royal in the coming months. >> eleanor. >> nobody is a shoe-in with the republican party that fails to defeat president obama for reelection but still seems determined to make him a failed president but jacob lew is as close to a shoe-in as there can be. the only complaint you hear is that he hasn't spent enough time on wall street, and for a lot of democrats that's actually a positive attribute. so he will be confirmed. and i believe senator hagel will also be confirmed, although that's a bigger fight, and his remarks about israel that somehow he isn't tough enough on israel, his objection to sanctions was that they were unilateral. he now supports the current sanctions. he is certainly not antiisrael. those arguments will be put aside. he is there to cut the budget, and he's the man for the moment. he has the appetite to do that. >> so this prospective appointment is bypassing wall street. is that good play by obama? >> well, in the first four years of the -- of his administration, the first term, his great j
do -- not what your country can do for you, but what you can do per your country. they whereabouts the biggest lines at the time. but over time, they became important. how important is it for barack obama to find that one line that is important to his approach of governing? >> i hope he's not thinking about that. i think he is not. a line is a sentence and a sentence is a thought. it only lasts and breaks through and has meaning if it is a real thought. writing is thinking. when you can listen to a speech and hear the thinking, then that's a real document, you know? you can't just write lines. never try to do that. >> last time around, it was under 20 minutes, which was good, people approach brevity, especially on a cold day. we will see how long it is this time. >> the president has stepped into his second term in an intimate setting inside the white house. the inauguration is supposed to bring the nation together. but it is no secret that the country is politically divided, perhaps more than ever before. let's get some perspective from our political experts, karl rove in new york
a difference? >> i doubt it. president obama won 51 percent of the vote a clear victory, but it is not as if the country is overwhelmingly on his side on all the issues. the way he handled gun control, the issue he did not expect to deal with and he put it first, understandably, i suppose, but he did not privately meet with republicans including republican moderates. there are plenty of republicans who are in between the most hard-line second amendment position and president obama's position. if you were johnson or bill clinton you would have private meetings or ask your chief staff or others to have private meetings with republican members and say, what can we do? what can we agree on? no. they have this task force that is entirely testimony of all the people on his side, the n.r.a. comes in for 20 minutes and he announced the gun control, he does 23 executive orders and has a list of legislation. there is not much evidence that he wants to or knows how to try to co-op the republicans. >>bret: the moody -- bloody end to the algerian hostage stand off. >>bret: the smoke
late last year, mr. obama says he will retaliate. >> the world is watching. the use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. >> reporter: countries that lived through the arab spring two years ago are morphing into a zone of instability. barack obama put his administration on the line for egypt's president mohamed morsi, a member of the muslim brotherhood. but egypt's economy is on the ropes. across the region, political storm clouds ar gathering as iran, israel and eight arab countries hold crucial elections this year. >> in every one of them, a new form of right, far, far right is emerging as to change the balance of power. >> reporter: in his first term, barack obama said he was making the middle east peace process a priority, but middle east expert aaron david miller says don't get your hopes up for this term. >> the fact is if you -- if the administration tried to put mahmoud abbas and benjamin netanyahu down together, right now, or in february, at the negotiating table, the gaps between them are so large that they simply cannot be bridged and the u.s., yet again,
of the subjects that does not come up is how many legislators -- we heard president obama and vice president biden looking at their relationship, but the fact is, these countries have many ways in which they see the world together, and there are differences. but there is a lot of pressure in the town not to talk about the differences. i think that is what judge cable is getting at. the other, that disturbed me about israel vetting candidates, israel is not the vetting candidates. the deputy foreign minister of israel has issued very strong, solid comments supporting him, saying he is a friend and that he supports his decision making and that he does not have a problem with his nomination. people trying to imagine the israeli government's opinion on this, why not look at them. there are some issues laid out, but i do think it would be wrong to settle is real with comments that it government leaders have not made. guest: steve is right. i would say that that clip that iran does get back to this theme with the senate career, making the israeli-palestinian issue central to the middle east policy. i th
what's happened lately to our country. >>> up next, what president obama's strategic vision on foreign policy is as he enters his second term. nbc news foreign correspondent ayman mohyeldin joins us next on "morning joe."

. durbin is giving mr. obama information on how to run the country when he cannot run the state of illinois. host: what are you specifically referring to? caller: the debt illinois is in. i lived in what they call "crook county." i do not know why he is giving the president and vice on how to run the state. host: thanks for the call. from the cover of "the weekly standard" -- louis is joining us from the jacksonville, fla. caller: the tea party people are robbing the nation. they did not allow a contract on supplying the military. when obama took office, the conservatives speak up. when did they think bush was doing all of this? host: the headline on the egyptian court. this story is getting some attention on this sunday morning. the court reporter please ordering a new trial. james from florida on the independent line. good morning. caller: i love c-span. thank you for it. i have never understood why in the 21st century we need political parties. i hear about disenfranchisement. i have registered as no party preferred. i feel disenfranchised because i am not in a party. why do we need the
of them having to do with iraq, but some having to do with the obama administration's desire to get out of iraq today, we left that country. the result is kind of an increasing instability. if we had stayed, would it be unstable? it is impossible to say. i suspect we would have less instability. host: writing about this nomination, the headline -- there is the team of rivals and the movie "lincoln." moving from a team of rivals to a band of brothers. guest: the state of the union address will be on abraham lincoln's birthday. we have lots of ways to further reinforce this metaphor. host: the oscars are pending. guest: that is true. when you think of joe biden, chuck hagel, barack obama, john kerry, you four guys that worked in that committee. i think they will find opportunities. they did work together. i remember david petraeus, when he was testifying about afghanistan, was asked by richard luger about strategy and where afghanistan fit inside the broader objectives. he said, that is not my job. my job is to achieve success and achieve our objective inside afghanistan. i cannot tell yo
it isn't about bashing the northeast. it is about saving the country. >> we have to get this under control. most conservatives believe we have to come to a point where we stand and fight. i hope this is the time. >> after president obama said it would be irresponsible and absurd for republicans to insist on spending cuts in order to raise the debt ceiling and key senate republican says mr. obama doesn't get it. >> you have a kid that keeps a credit card loaded and a person that would tear up the credit card but you look at the credit. republicans are willing to pay for past bill but this is about the future bill. the president misses the point here. >> reporter: today, house democratic whip steny hoyer said new revenue must accompany spending cuts. for day, the final passage is expected in the house in the next hour or so. bret? >> bret: mike, we will follow that on fox. thank you. ominous note now from one of the world's top credit agencies. fitch rating says the u.s. could lose the top credit rating if there is a delay in raising the debt limit. we'll find out with the senior pol
pbs stations. >> woodruff: again, the major developments of the day. president obama made ready to announce his strategy for cutting gun violence, as new york state's legislature enacted the toughest gun law in the country. former cycling great lance armstrong reportedly admitted to doping during his career during an interview with oprah winfrey. online we have the story of a boston eatery where second chances for employees come with a side of slaw. hari sreenivasan explains. >> sreenivasan: haley house has served time for weapons violations, drug trafficking, even murder. now, they're serving up lunch, and redefining their lives while working at this popular neighborhood restaurant. all that and more is on our web site, newshour.pbs.org. judy? >> woodruff: and that's the newshour for tonight. on wednesday, we'll have full coverage of president obama's push for new gun laws. i'm judy woodruff. >> brown: and i'm jeffrey brown. we'll see you online, and again here tomorrow evening. thank you, and good night. >> major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: >> bnsf railw
? , >> guest: is a countries whose future is uncertain, and certainly it could become -- and already is a bit off the path of democracy in my assessment, but the battle really isn't lost. the american government -- the obama administration is trying to do what it can to stabilize things, but it lost a lot of influence with the departure of american forces. one thing that the american forces did get in the united states is more clout inside of iraq. >> host: talk about the release of a man accused of killing american soldiers. this issue that you write about in your book, "the endgame," but also some news that came out in november about the release of ali. >> guest: there's been a number of events that i think have worked against the american interest in iraq. that duke is one of them. she is an iraqi come he is a lebanese who was sent into iraq at the behest of the american courts because hezbollah is supported by iran. for the purposes of training of the shiite militia who were fighting the american troops, and he was captured along with a number of the shiite militia leaders in the rate con
of people from other parts of the country and not let this stuff come up for a vote? >> what do you think the white house's assessment is of that what you just laid out? what do you expect from president obama tomorrow in terms of a balance between things he can do himself and things he would need congress to do? >> well, he is going to do as much as he can to enforce existing law and do things through executive orders. no, the gun owners don't have to fear he is not going to take guns away through executive orders. it's that fear, that paranoia being spread by the nra and others. but he is going to take executive action. but i think he is going to propose a very robust plan from everything i hear, including an assault weapons ban. that seems to be the measure that has the most difficulty. one of the things i think they're going to propose, by the way, is to make it a lot easier to collect data on gun violence, on people who die in violence. the nra has blocked even the collection of data. so we can't know what is going on. so we can't come up with the right solutions. i hope that is part
in 2009 and president obama and the first lady went to a number of them and this time just two and while the venues are bigger, the verizon center, it's part of trying to recognize that the country has big challenges ahead and the work really begins the day after tomorrow. >> harris: carl cameron keeping an eye on it for all of us, live. thank you very much, carl. barbara walters is recovering from a bump on the head the veteran news person, or news woman i should say tripped and fell at the home of britain's ambassador to the u.s. during an inaugural party and the fall left her with a cut on her for head, she remained alert, but the friends at the party thought it was a good idea to take her to the hospital for a full examination. it's unclear when she will be released from the hospital. walters, 83, had heart surgery just a couple of years ago. new information from algeria following the hostage crisis at one of the gas plants. the military raided and seized it. and algerian forces found 25 more bodies and the bodies in such bad condition, it wasn't clear if they were hostages or terror
